Selection for the Sustainable Energy Project Support of the Wuppertal Institute of Climate, Environment, Energy

The Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy (at the Science Centre, North Rhine-Westphalia,Wuppertal, Germany) had called for proposals for its third round of Sustainable Energy Project Support (SEPS), on behalf of the foundation ProEvolution. Criteria for selection included technical viability, economic feasibility, local and global environmental benefits, marketability and replication possibilities on a wider scale, and sound implementation strategy. Our proposed project that focuses on the case of cooking fuel needs in India, is one of the selected projects this year [Click here]. We intend demonstrating an energy enterprise for rural development. The energy-development model that we propose involves forming a co-operative of village families to produce clean, efficient fuel from local renewable resources, enabling financial sustainability by linking revenue from a related saleable product. During the project period, one case will be demonstrated, but this could be used to facilitate larger-scale replication. For a summary of the proposed project, please [Click here].
